At its meeting of 13 December 2016 the Legislative Assembly resolved to create:

"a Standing Committee on Public Accounts to:

  1. examine:
    1. the accounts of the receipts and expenditure of the Australian Capital Territory and its authorities; and
    2. all reports of the Auditor-General which have been presented to the Assembly;
  2. report to the Assembly any items or matters in those accounts, statements and reports, or any circumstances connected with them, to which the Committee is of the opinion that the attention of the Assembly should be directed; and
  3. inquire into any question in connection with the public accounts which is referred to it by the Assembly and to report to the Assembly on that question."

In accordance with the Committee’s terms of resolution of establishment all reports of the Auditor-General presented to the Legislative Assembly for the ACT are referred to the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) for examination.
